+mlx5 subfunction
+================
+mlx5 supports subfunctions management using devlink port (see :ref:`Documentation/networking/devlink/devlink-port.rst <devlink_port>`) interface.
+
+A Subfunction has its own function capabilities and its own resources. This
+means a subfunction has its own dedicated queues(txq, rxq, cq, eq). These queues
+are neither shared nor stealed from the parent PCI function.
+
+When subfunction is RDMA capable, it has its own QP1, GID table and rdma
+resources neither shared nor stealed from the parent PCI function.
+
+A subfunction has dedicated window in PCI BAR space that is not shared
+with ther other subfunctions or parent PCI function. This ensures that all
+class devices of the subfunction accesses only assigned PCI BAR space.
+
+A Subfunction supports eswitch representation through which it supports tc
+offloads. User must configure eswitch to send/receive packets from/to
+subfunction port.
+
+Subfunctions share PCI level resources such as PCI MSI-X IRQs with
+ther other subfunctions and/or with its parent PCI function.
+

+Subfunction is created using devlink port interface.
+
+- Change device to switchdev mode::
+
+    $ devlink dev eswitch set pci/0000:06:00.0 mode switchdev
+
+- Add a devlink port of subfunction flaovur::
+
+    $ devlink port add pci/0000:06:00.0 flavour pcisf pfnum 0 sfnum 88
+
+- Show a devlink port of the subfunction::
+
+    $ devlink port show pci/0000:06:00.0/32768
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev enp6s0pf0sf88 flavour pcisf pfnum 0 sfnum 88
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:00:00:00:00:00
+
+- Delete a devlink port of subfunction after use::
+
+    $ devlink port del pci/0000:06:00.0 flavour pcisf pfnum 0 sfnum 88
+
+mlx5 port function
+==================
+mlx5 driver provides mechanism to setup PCI VF/SF port function
+attributes in unified way for smartnic and non-smartnic NICs.
+
+This is supported only when eswitch mode is set to switchdev. Port function
+configuration of the PCI VF/SF is supported through devlink eswitch port.
+
+Port function attributes should be set before PCI VF/SF is enumerated by the
+driver.
+
+MAC address setup
+-----------------
+mlx5 driver provides mechanism to setup the MAC address of the PCI VF/SF.
+
+Configured MAC address of the PCI VF/SF will be used by netdevice and rdma
+device created for the PCI VF/SF.
+
+- Get MAC address of the VF identified by its unique devlink port index::
+
+    $ devlink port show pci/0000:06:00.0/2
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/2: type eth netdev enp6s0pf0vf1 flavour pcivf pfnum 0 vfnum 1
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:00:00:00:00:00
+
+- Set MAC address of the VF identified by its unique devlink port index::
+
+    $ devlink port function set pci/0000:06:00.0/2 hw_addr 00:11:22:33:44:55
+
+    $ devlink port show pci/0000:06:00.0/2
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/2: type eth netdev enp6s0pf0vf1 flavour pcivf pfnum 0 vfnum 1
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:11:22:33:44:55
+
+- Get MAC address of the SF identified by its unique devlink port index::
+
+    $ devlink port show pci/0000:06:00.0/32768
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev enp6s0pf0sf88 flavour pcisf pfnum 0 sfnum 88
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:00:00:00:00:00
+
+- Set MAC address of the VF identified by its unique devlink port index::
+
+    $ devlink port function set pci/0000:06:00.0/32768 hw_addr 00:00:00:00:88:88
+
+    $ devlink port show pci/0000:06:00.0/32768
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev enp6s0pf0sf88 flavour pcivf pfnum 0 sfnum 88
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:00:00:00:88:88
+
+SF state setup
+--------------
+To use the SF, user must active the SF using SF port function state attribute.
+
+- Get state of the SF identified by its unique devlink port index::
+
+   $ devlink port show ens2f0npf0sf88
+   pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev ens2f0npf0sf88 flavour pcisf controller 0 pfnum 0 sfnum 88 external false splittable false
+     function:
+       hw_addr 00:00:00:00:88:88 state inactive opstate detached
+
+- Activate the function and verify its state is active::
+
+   $ devlink port function set ens2f0npf0sf88 state active
+
+   $ devlink port show ens2f0npf0sf88
+   pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev ens2f0npf0sf88 flavour pcisf controller 0 pfnum 0 sfnum 88 external false splittable false
+     function:
+       hw_addr 00:00:00:00:88:88 state active opstate detached
+
+Upon function activation, PF driver instance gets the event from the device that
+particular SF was activated. It's the cue to put the device on bus, probe it and
+instantiate devlink instance and class specific auxiliary devices for it.
+
+- Show the auxiliary device and port of the subfunction::
+
+    $ devlink dev show
+    devlink dev show auxiliary/mlx5_core.sf.4
+
+    $ devlink port show auxiliary/mlx5_core.sf.4/1
+    auxiliary/mlx5_core.sf.4/1: type eth netdev p0sf88 flavour virtual port 0 splittable false
+
+    $ rdma link show mlx5_0/1
+    link mlx5_0/1 state ACTIVE physical_state LINK_UP netdev p0sf88
+
+    $ rdma dev show
+    8: rocep6s0f1: node_type ca fw 16.29.0550 node_guid 248a:0703:00b3:d113 sys_image_guid 248a:0703:00b3:d112
+    13: mlx5_0: node_type ca fw 16.29.0550 node_guid 0000:00ff:fe00:8888 sys_image_guid 248a:0703:00b3:d112
+
+- Subfunction auxilary device and class device hierarchy::
+
+                 mlx5_core.sf.4
+          (subfunction auxilary device)
+                       /\
+                      /  \
+                     /    \
+                    /      \
+                   /        \
+      mlx5_core.eth.4     mlx5_core.rdma.4
+     (sf eth aux dev)     (sf rdma aux dev)
+         |                      |
+         |                      |
+      p0sf88                  mlx5_0
+     (sf netdev)          (sf rdma device)
+
+Additionally SF port also gets the event when the driver attaches to the
+auxiliary device of the subfunction. This results in changing the operational
+state of the function. This provides visiblity to user to decide when it is
+safe to delete the SF port for graceful termination of the subfunction.
+
+- Show the SF port operational state::
+
+    $ devlink port show ens2f0npf0sf88
+    pci/0000:06:00.0/32768: type eth netdev ens2f0npf0sf88 flavour pcisf controller 0 pfnum 0 sfnum 88 external false splittable false
+      function:
+        hw_addr 00:00:00:00:88:88 state active opstate attached
